it is located on top of the hill, we ordered the simple capuccino to kill time. Tourists are around here and there, very quiet ambience, with great sea view in front. It is a very relaxing venue, to spend peaveful time in.

This a a really nice place to visit for the views unfortunately they are letting people whoever they are build up the hill side towards the castle and are going to ruin the hillside altogether in a few years if not sooner. I would have a few beers or coffees and go back to town to eat, the food was... More

You should eat here and watch the sunset. The food was nothing special and it was a poor selection of wine and drinks. Beautiful view over Saranda though. You should take a taxi up (600 LEK) because it is a long and steep way up.

A sunset from there is a must seen performance! Really, it's amazing! Service is okay, can't say much. Prices are too high, for example the same salad in another restaurant is cheaper.

We were pleasantly surprised ro visit the castle on our last day of holidays. Scenery was amazing (photos are real). Food was substandard, bruschetta was hard as rock and meat was anything but.. Waiting staff seem to be interested in getting you to eat and go. Do visit for a drink- food not value for money.

The food was average and a little overpriced, but the atmosphere (it was a Saturday night) was definitely worth the steep drive up (scary in the dark!). We enjoyed live Albanian music, featuring a group of traditional iso-polyphonic Albanian folk singers and valle (traditional dance) which guests could join in with. Later in the evening there were also fireworks which... More

Delicious food, perfect view of Sarande and good, friendly service. Also, not expensive if you think of the luxury you are provided with! Would recommend going there right before sunset so you get to see the beautiful sunset and then enjoy the evening
